Elaphe obseleta obseleta

So it has been a while again, but this was too good not to post. Today as I was spreading grass seed, minding my own business, I found myself eye to eye with this guy. I don't need my coffee today... Turns out he is a black rat snake, and his mate was also up in the tree. She had just eaten a nest full of young robins. Except for the one who got away...for now.
